STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) — A judge has an ordered a psychological evaluation for an Oklahoma woman accused of driving her car into Oklahoma State’s homecoming parade, killing four people and injuring dozens of others.

Payne County Special District Judge Katherine Thomas also set bond at $1 million for Adacia Chambers, who is being held on four preliminary counts of second-degree murder as prosecutors consider formal charges.

Chambers appeared at Monday’s hearing via video. The only time she spoke was to say "yes" when the judge asked if she could hear her.

Thomas said the hearing will resume Nov. 13 after prosecutors said they needed more time to interview the dozens of witnesses at the scene. Prosecutors also said one of the injured is in a "fragile" state, which could lead to more charges.
